NWSB managing editor Q brings us his Love Em & Hate Em recaps Monday night’s game between the Portland Trail Blazers vs. Phoenix Suns. The Blazers are officially out of the running for the 2012 playoffs. Coach Canales has been preaching defense, so he had to be extremely disappointed in last night’s effort. You could make a solid argument that J.J. Hickson has been Portland’s best player.
Portland Trailblazers blogger Matt Martz weighs in with his Love’Em & Hate’Em column for the Blazers vs. Phoenix Suns game on Friday night. Steve Nash had a perfect night from the field en route to a 17-point, nine-assist performance. LaMarcus Aldridge countered with 14 for Portland. The rest of the starting five combined for just 21 points on 6-for-21 shooting.
